The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

A Liar's Autobiography

Bunny and I watched “A Liar's Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python's Graham Chapman” and I must say—it's a very odd film, even by Monty Python standards. Animated, in fourteen different styles (some of it very beautifully done) with most of Monty Python doing voice work (and no, it's not Graham Chapman that isn't in it), it's a completely made up story of the life of Graham Chapman.

Well, mostly made up. It does cover his homosexuality and drinking problems. But everything else is made up. Well, except for him working for Monty Python. But short of the homosexuality, the drinking problems, and working with Monty Python, it's all made up. Except his name really is Graham Chapman.

Okay, let me start over again.

Except for his name, his homosexuality, drinking problems and working with Monty Python, the movie is completey and utterly false.

Except he did study to become a doctor.


Well, it's a very weird film and you should watch it because it's kind of true, except when it isn't.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
